The 144000 in Revelation Ch 14 are mature firstfruits (Wheat) who get their inheritance before the great multitude of believers (Also Wheat) — The 144000 in Revelation Ch 7 are Jews taken from each of the 12 tribes of Israel and are sealed before the seventh seal is opened so as to be protected from God’s wrath

 

There are two groups of 144000.

The first group of 144000 in Revelations Chapter 7 are Jews taken from the 12 tribes of Israel. They will be on Earth during the Millennium along with the Sheep Nations who survive Armageddon. They will repopulate the Earth to fulfill the promises that God made to the Jews in the Old Testament. During the Millennium, Christ will reign in Heaven with his Bride composed of all believers that will be resurrected or raptured to be with Him when he comes again.

The second group of 144000 in Revelation Chapter 14 are Christians. They are raptured to go to heaven to be with Christ before the Great Tribulation starts. They are the first fruits from among the Living (Christ was the first fruit from the dead). The Great Multitude of believers from every tribe, nation and tongue are not raptured until the end of the Great Tribuation when the Seventh Seal is opened and the Seventh Trumpet sounds

Revelation 7 – Who are the 144000 and the Great Multitude?

Posted by gospelclips on May 16, 2010

Who are the 144000 and the Great Multitude mentioned between the sixth and the seventh seals in Revelations Ch 7?

The 144000 Jews are sealed after the sixth seal is opened and are most likely part of the seventh seal.  They are protected from the  wrath of God’s that follows.  They will be God’s people on Earth during the Millennium.

The Great Multitude appear in heaven at the same time.  This corresponds to the first resurrection and the rapture of the Church at the second coming of Christ when the Seven seal is opened and the Seventh Trumpet Sounds.

144000 Jews are sealed

Before God pours out his Wrath

When the seventh seal is opened

The 144000 Jews are Sealed when the seventh seal is opened. The Church is raptured at the same time and sleeping believers are resurrected (first resurrection). The Jews are protected form God’s wrath by the seal of God. Once the Church has been redeemed from the Earth, God can pour out his wrath upon the Nations (Pagans) of the Earth. Those who survive God’s wrath will repopulate the Earth during the Millennium including the 144000 Jews that were sealed. At the End of the Millennium all Pagans will be resurrected to be Judged at the Great White Throne (second resurrection) . Those who are not in the Lambs Book of Life will be thrown into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death.

Revelation 6:1-8:5

The Seals

  • I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
  • When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.
  • When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
  • When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
  • When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed.
  • I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
  • Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

144,000 Sealed

  • After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.
  • From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed,
  • from the tribe of Reuben 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Gad 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Asher 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Simeon 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Levi 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Issachar 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Joseph 12,000,
  • from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.

The Great Multitude in White Robes

  • After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever.
  • Amen!”
  • Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”
  • I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, “they are before the throne of God
  • and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them.
  • Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat.
  • For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water.
  • And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

The Seventh Seal and the Golden Censer

  • When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
  • And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.
  • Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
  • The sealing of the 144000 and the vision of the Great Multitude standing before the Throne in Heaven is given after the events of the sixth seal are discribed and immediately before the seventh seal is mentioned.
  • Not much is said when the Seventh Seal is opened other than there was rest in heaven for half an hour.
  • This is because the sealing of the 144000 Jews and the Rapture of the Great Multitude so that God can pour out His Wrath on the Nations is what the Seventh Seal is about.
  • The Seventh Seal is clearly post tribulation.
  • The events that take place as the first six seals are opened indicate that the Great Tribulation is taking place.
  • The Great multitude that appear in Heaven have been through the Great Tribulation.
  • The fifth Seal even mentions those who have been killed because of the Word of God and the testimony that they maintained. “How long will it be until we are avenged” they cry.
  • When the sixth seal is opened, Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”
  • When the seventh seal is opened, it will be apparent who is listed upon the Scroll which is the Book of Life.
  • When the Seventh seal is opened, it will be time for God to pour out His wrath upon the Nations (Pagans).
  • God protects the 144000 Jews by sealing them and God removes the Christians who survive the Great Tribulation by rapturing them.
  • When God’s people are protected or removed from Earth, God is able to pour out His Wrath on the Nations (Pagans).
  • The Nations (Pagans) will be divided into the Sheep and the Goats according to how they treat God’s people.
  • Some of the Nations (Pagans) will reject the mark of the Beast.
  • All who accept the mark of the Beast will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.
  • There will be people from the Nations on Earth during the Millennium and in Eternity.
  • These people must not have accepted the Mark of the Beast otherwise they would have been thrown into the Lake of Fire.
  • Zechariah Ch 14 tells us that there will be people from the Nations who survive the Great Tribulation and go on into the Millennium.
  • The 144000 Jews will survive God’s Wrath as they have been protected by God’s Seal. They will go on to become God’s people on Earth during the Millennium and repopulate the Earth.
  • There will be survivors from the Nations (Pagans) who did not worship the Beast and were kind to God’s people. They will go on into the Millennium as the Millennial Nations.
  • The Nations (Pagans) will be Judged at the end of the Millennium at the Great White Throne. Those who have died up until that point will be resurrected (the Second Resurrection). Whoever is not in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be thrown into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death.
  • As there are Nations (Pagans) that surround the New Jerusalem in Eternity who have not been thrown into the Lake of Fire, there must be some people from the Nations (Pagans) who are in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
  • The New Nations (New Pagans) are not as privilaged as God’s People who get to enjoy God’s presence continually and eat of the Fruit of the Tree of Life. The New Nations, nevertheless, are permitted to enter the New Jerusalem and can partake of the leaves of the Tree of Life for Healing.
  • The New Jerusalem is composed of all God’s People from the New and the Old Covenants.
  • The New Jerusalem has 12 foundations which represent the 12 Apostles and 12 Gates which represent the 12 Tribes of Israel.
  • In the New Jerusalem, all God’s people will be together. God will be among them and He will be their light. They will all be able to partake of the Tree of Life and live forever.

    The 144000 Jews are sealed between the sixth and the seventh seal

    The 144000 Jews are sealed between the sixth and the seventh seal

    The rapture of the great multitude and the sealing of the 144000 Jews happens between the sixth and the seventh seal (Revelations 7)
    The rapture corresponds to Christ coming in the clouds (Thessalonians 4:16-17)
    The rapture occurs at the Last Trumpet (1Corinthians 15:52)

    144000 followers of the Lamb escape the Great Tribulation and 144000 Jews from the 12 tribes are sealed before God pours out his wrath

    Posted by gospelclips on June 28, 2009

    144000 followers of the Lamb escape the Great Tribulation and 144000 Jews from the 12 tribes are sealed before God pours out his wrath.

    144000 followers of the Lamb escape the Great Tribulation and 144000 Jews from the 12 tribes are sealed before God pours out his wrath.

    The 144000 followers of the Lamb are Christians who are ready to meet the Lord. They are called up as the first fruits of the Harvest before the Great Tribulation starts. The great multitude of believers will have to go through the great tribulation with patient endurance. They will be made spotless and refined. The great multitude of believers will be raptured / redeemed / harvested after 1260 days of tribulation before God pours out his wrath on the Pagans / Nations of the World. At the same time as the Great Multitude is Harvested, another group of 144000 Jews, taken from the 12 tribes, will be sealed so as to be protected from God’s wrath. They will survive God’s wrath and go on into the Millennium as God’s people on Earth. A gentile remnant will also survive God’s wrath and will go on to repopulate the Earth during the Millennium. Gentiles who survive God’s wrath must have rejected the Mark of the Beast and helped God’s people during the tribulation.
